BRUSSELS is the boundary of French and Dutch speakers in Belgium.. with a population of almost One million local and mixed nationalities.

Brussels is home of European Union and European Parliament!
The city offers a beautiful meideval architecture, impressive Grand Place within europe!..It's a city of diversity....history, architecture, sights and sounds to the world cuisine!...never forget belgians best like chocolates, beer, fries, lace and etc., of course, the city couldn't be complete without the famous MANNEKE PIS and the symbolistic ATOMIOM of brussels.

The Grand Place has a lot to offer to thousands of tourist from all over the world. It is widely popular with it's gothic architectured buildings made in sguare formations..The Grand Place..there are streets in every corners and worth a walk to discover, whatelse...cozy cafes and restaurant are a few walks away, make your choice!

    Looks like you had so much fun at your VT meeting. Trying to organise a Pretoria / Gauteng meeting, hope ours is half as good as yours looked! Anton
